Lea joined Sydney Weekender as a reporter in 2002. A former Miss Australia (Lea Dickson – Miss Australia 1989), Lea has also worked on National Channel 7 TV shows including New Idea TV and Mums & Bubs.
Sydney Weekender is the perfect job for a Mum of three busy children. Lea’s ‘kids’ have all appeared on Sydney Weekender over the years and loved being part of the ‘Weekender family’. When she’s not working, Lea can be found riding her horse and looking after her menagerie of rescue animals.
When Lea is asked to sum up what NSW means to her, she immediately thinks of country destinations. She’s always keen for a country road trip and meeting people in rural communities. Recent shoots to Orange and Holbrook; enjoying warm country hospitality and sampling local produce; that’s what NSW is
